Hey, I'll give whatever school that is credit for not pretending that Intel x86 is the be-all-end-all of computers.(System 390, by the way, is what the banks use when they keep track of their billions of dollars and need a computer that absolutely cannot fail. According to Wikipedia, it does every computation twice just to be sure.)
Err, that's probably the wrong Wiki article. They're calling it System Z or something now, but it's the same basic thing.
I like the surprises in the philosophy of science. Every class must have been like Christmas.
People who attended Feyerabend's lectures at Berkeley still speak of his fondness for the "Bucket of water balanced on the lecture-hall door" trick.
But, waitaminute now. If they're all Oh and Two, who's in first place?
Ho ho mikey, the 0 stands for theory hours and the 2 stands for practice. WHICH MEANS LAB WORK IN SURPRISES!
LAB WORK IN SURPRISES!The goddamn ethics committee has stopped me from staging radiation-leak alarms during tutorials and recording the students' reactions. Bastards.
I took a philosophy course called "Some Southpaw Pitching"
Of course, "Surprises in the Philosophy of Science XXI Century" is taught by the Insane Clown Posse.
Fuckin existentialism, how does it work?
WHICH MEANS LAB WORK IN SURPRISES!if the prof is a male, I am not interested.
Although I did take an English Lit course in Science Fiction, during the course of which I defended the TV show "Quark", using Stanislaw Lem as a precedent.I got an A. Also got the prof to wear an earring for the final.
Of course, "Surprises in the Philosophy of Science XXI Century" is taught by the Insane Clown Posse.I hate when BBBBBB wins a thread before I even read all the comments.
Lab work in philosophy and beat music? I hope you get credit for staying up late, playing records and talking shite.
I hope you get credit for staying up late, playing records and talking shite.In my case, no credit; it actually cost me money.
I used to work on a IBM 370. But I only used JCL and econometric packages, so there goes my street cred.~
I mis-spent my tech-youth running UNIX on everything. Remember "Workstations"? We did stuff on the desktop a full decade ahead of big iron.Finally, Intel processors became so powerful that RISC didn't hold an edge any more, brute force was the order of the day, and when they built "Beowulf" loosely coupled massively parallel systems, everything Seymour Cray thought he knew suddenly just didn't matter anymore. Cheap hardware wins, every time. The challenge is creating software that can keep up...
Cheap hardware wins, every time.NSA disagrees.
Remember "Workstations"? We did stuff on the desktop a full decade ahead of big iron.the first place I worked out of college, I helped select the CAD package when they transitioned. We put Microstation on Sun Sparcstations.It flew, let me tell you....
